It’s a good questions and one Andrew Bolt asks, he surmises that sadly no, we aren’t all Charlie.
PROTESTERS around the West, horrified by the massacre in Paris, have held up pens and chanted āJe suis Charlieā ā I am Charlie.
They lie. The Islamist terrorists are winning, and the coordinated attacks on the Charlie Hebdomagazine and kosher shop will be just one more success. One more step to our gutless surrender.
Al-Qaeda in Yemen didnāt attack Charlie Hebdo because we are all Charlie Hebdo.
The opposite. It sent in the brothers Cherif and Said Kouachi because Charlie Hebdo was almost alone.
Unlike most politicians, journalists, lawyers and other members of our ruling classes, this fearless magazine dared to mock Islam in the way the Left routinely mocks Christianity. Unlike much of our ruling class, it refused to sell out our freedom to speak.
Its greatest sin ā to the Islamists ā was to republish the infamous cartoons of Denmarkās Jyllands-Posten which mocked Mohammed, and then to publish even more of its own, including oneĀ showing the Muslim prophet naked.
Are we really all Charlie? No, no and shamefully no.
No Australian newspaper dared published those pictures, too, bar one whichĀ did so in error.
